4.MD.A.3-Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical

problems.

CCSS Mathematics Practice Standard:

Standard #4- Model with Mathematics

Enduring Understandings:

The formula for the area of a rectangle (length x width) and the formula for the perimeter

of a rectangle (2 x (length + width)) can be used to solve various real world problems.

Many tasks that are completed in various careers require employees to use the area and

perimeter formulas of a rectangle to solve problems. (Note- this EU doesnt necessarily

relate directly back to the CCSS, but is more of an extension of the first EU. My goal of

adding this EU is to help students notice many careers utilize this math concept and that

the performance task is an excellent example.)

When calculating the area of a rectangle, you use (length x width) and when calculating

the perimeter of a rectangle, you use (2 x (length+width)).

Essential Questions:

How can the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles be applied to real world

scenarios?

How are the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles used in the work place?

Why are the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles important?

Objectives/Learning Outcomes:

Students will be able to identify real-world & work place applications of the area &

perimeter formulas of a rectangle. (Objective #1)

Students will be able to apply the area & perimeter formulas to real life & work place

scenarios. (Objective #2)

Students will be able to successfully calculate using the area and perimeter formulas of a

rectangle & explain the process of using the area and perimeter formulas of a rectangle.

(Objective #3)

Materials:

Pencils

Each student needs a copy of the performance task packet

A Performance Task

Seneca Park Zoo is very excited to announce that they are planning to add some new animal

exhibits! Seneca Park Zoo hopes to add reindeer, belugas, foxes, giraffes, goats, flamingoes, and

other various animals. The Seneca Park Zoo also wants to enlarge the current exhibit for the

tigers and relocate the sea lions to be near the belugas. In order to complete these above tasks,

Seneca Park Zoo is looking to hire a landscape architect to determine the sizes of each exhibit.

You have submitted your resume for the job, and the person in charge of the hiring process has

passed you on to the next step of the application process! The next step of the application process

asks you to figure out preliminary sizes of select exhibits. The reason you are asked to calculate

preliminary sizes of select exhibits is to showcase your ability to perform the job that you may be

hired for! You will present your calculations to a hiring panel at Seneca Park Zoo. Once you have

shown that you are competent with the job duties, you will be hired as Seneca Park Zoos

landscape architect!

For the showcase that you will present to the hiring panel, you will need to discuss the

calculations that you have done. To prepare for this presentation, you will need to work through

the following exercises. Each exercise asks you to calculate preliminary sizes of select exhibits.

After you complete the following exercises, you will need to present to the hiring panel to

demonstrate that you are a good fit for the job. In your presentation, you will be asked to explain

how you solved any ONE calculation and explain how you would need to use mathematical

formulas in your job.

Your presentation must meet the following criteria in order for you to receive final consideration

for the job:

You must give a thorough explanation of how you solved any ONE of the exercises.

(objective #2 and #3)

You must give a thorough explanation of how and why you will need to use the area and

perimeter formulas of a rectangle in your job. (objective #1)

You must briefly mention a career that you have worked in (prior experience) that

required you to use the area or the perimeter formulas. Be sure to include a brief

explanation of what responsibilities you had that required you to calculate area.

(objective #1)

Good luck and I hope you get the job!

Seneca Park Zoo is very excited to add foxes, one of the worlds most fascinating wild animals!

They hope to place the foxes next to the wolves. Please calculate the area of a possible fox

exhibit with the length of 15 yards and the width of 8 yards. Please be sure to show your work

and be sure to use the area formula of rectangles.

15 yards

8 yards

ANSWER: __________ yards

Goats are very interesting animals, and Seneca Park Zoo is excited for Rochester to be able to

observe them! The goats exhibit could potentially be 27 yards long and 9 yards wide. Please

calculate the perimeter of the goats exhibit by using the perimeter formula of rectangles. Be sure

to show your work.

9 yards

27 yards

FORMULA: 2 x (length+width)

ANSWER: ___________ yards

Flamingoes are some of the most gracious creatures on planet Earth, and Seneca Park Zoo will

be adding them to their zoo family! Please calculate the area of a possible flamingo exhibit that

would be 24 yards long and 6 yards wide. Please calculate the area of the flamingoes exhibit by

using the area formula of rectangles. Be sure to show your work.

6 yards

24 yards

ANSWER: _____________ yards

The Seneca Park Zoo is excited to add the belugas- they may even allow zoo visitors to touch

and interact with the belugas! Please calculate the perimeter of a potential aquarium for the

belugas with a length of 30 yards and a width of 7 yards. Please be sure to show your work and

be sure to use the perimeter formula of rectangles.

Pick any career that is listed under the management or the professional column. Once you have

identified a career that is listed under one of these two columns, click on the career and read the

brief description that is located at the top of the page. After you have read the description of the

career, use your imagination to think about how you may use the area or the perimeter formula of

rectangles in that particular job. A part of your presentation requires you to identify a job that you

have had in the past in which you used one of these two formulas. This exercise prepares you for

this part of the presentation. The career that you pick on this website will serve as the job that

you had that used these formulas.

Now it is time to take the five exercises that you have completed and write-out what you are

going to say during your presentation with the hiring panel. If you answer each question/prompt

thoroughly, you will be well prepared to present in front of the hiring panel. Remember, your

presentation will determine if you get the job, so be sure to be well prepared!

Please choose any ONE exercise from exercises #1-#4 and write-up a thorough explanation of

how you solved the area or perimeter problem. Your explanation should be a step-by-step process

of how you used the formula to solve the problem. Be sure to include how you plugged the

numbers into the formula, and how you knew which formula to use. Lastly, be sure to include the

specific formula that you used. Remember, the purpose of this is for you to show the hiring panel

that you are competent enough to calculate area and perimeter using the formulas!

Using exercises #1-#4, think about how and why you will need to use the area and perimeter

formulas in your job as the landscape architect. To help you, think about what each exercise

asked you to do and how the exercises directly relate to your job duties.

Finally, take what you wrote in exercise #5 and write a brief narrative showing that you have

prior experience using the area and/or perimeter formula in a prior job. Employers are always

looking to hire people that have prior experience with the skills needed to perform the job duties

(in this case, those skills are using the area and perimeter formulas of a rectangle).
